Lewis Holtby is convinced Tottenham can win the Europa League.

Andre Villas-Boas’ men play Lyon on Thursday.

Asked if the north Londoners can go all the way, Holtby said: “Definitely.

“I played in the Europa League last season with Schalke. We went to the quarter-finals. But Tottenham are able to do big things.

“I’m not saying that if we don’t get the Cup we’ll be disappointed, but I think we have the team and squad to get that trophy and we’re confident.

“All respect to Schalke, I had a very good season there. We had a great team and we were having a good season before I left. But I’m now happy to be here."
